Today i am going to be looking at banners, personally i find these one of the hardest items to use in a kit, but i do know some people can use them beautifully so i try to include them in my kits.
There are plenty of different ways to use them on your page as you can see some from of the examples below.
Kit used - Happiness is
This cute little banner has been used to create the cluster in which the photo is tucked into
kit used - Garden Party
These aren't your usual banners but a string of lights instead,
kit used - you make me smile
This is a little flourish of a banner tucked into the flowers.
kit used - Our Family
The banner in this is tucked under the photo
kit used - Happy Heart
Once again this has the banner tucked under the photo so you only get glimpses of it
kit used - March Fun
This is a way of making the banner stand out on your layout and really makes the photo stand out
As you can see there are many different ways to use banners, i think really i shouldn't be so scared and start using them a bit more on my pages. If you are still scared there is a great set of templates that take the worry away for you.
if you are still unsure, i have a freebie for you
I have some more inspiring items to bring you over the week, but this is going to be a weekly thing so i hope you find it helpful
